Isle of Man TT blog: McGuinness throws the gauntlet down

So there I was, sat in my hotel room at around 10 yesterday morning crashing out the MCN back page bits and bobs from Snetterton BSB. We’d just jetted into Ronaldsway from Birmingham (always sounds better if you adopt a sweet home Alabama accent). Okay, our bags were still back on the mainland thanks to a conveyor belt malfunction that ...

Blog: The sensation of Scarborough

There’s something really, really cool, but really, really scary about spectating at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough. Hanging over a fence made from 4x2 timber is all that separates you from touching road racing super-heroes like Guy Martin, Ian Hutchinson, John McGuinness, Ryan Farquhar and Ian Lougher. You can look straight into their clear visors and see the whites of their eyes ...

Rutter TT Blog: "I must be one of the few glad to see the rain"

We’ve not had so much luck coming our way in the back end of this week but we certainly struck lucky with the rain today, causing the Superbike race to be postponed until Monday. If it had gone ahead as planned today I wouldn’t have been on the grid. After the engine popped a head gasket on Thursday we ordered ...

Marc Potter TT blog day 2

There's a massive buzz in the Island as the TT practice kicks off for the final night before Saturday’s big race. The biggest numbers ever have already been set by Cameron Donald’s 131.457mph lap, but the biggest disappointment is that Valentino Rossi won’t be riding tomorrow. I’m not the only one who’s gutted. Hundreds of riders have booked ferries and flights ...

Michael Rutter blog: “I was looking forward to a good lap”

Everything was going fine last night. I’d done a 125.5mph lap and was looking forward to a really good lap but we hit a few problems – as you can and often do at the TT. We were down on speed early in the week so Dave Hagen re-mapped the engine management system for us. Wednesday night it was better ...

Rutter's Blog: "All the effort's been worthwhile just to ride down Bray Hill!"

I can’t deny it. The first time I rode down Bray Hill on Monday night I had a real tingle down my neck with excitement.  It felt so good to be back at the TT, especially to be on a bike that wasn’t even built a week earlier. I found myself grinning for ear to ear as I was riding ...

Isle of Man TT blog: McGuinness nervous? Too right

When the sun shines, there’s nowhere better to go racing than at the Isle of Man TT Races – and, boy, is the sun shining! The first timed practice session has just finished and whilst the Island is continuing to welcome a steady flow of visitors, expected to increase considerably as the week wears on, there’s a very relaxed mood ...

Michael Rutter blog: It’s hectic running your own team

I can’t believe how hectic things have been today (Thursday). I was up at 6.00am and on the road. I spent all day driving around the Black Country in the Bathams van that I’ve borrowed for the Isle of Man TT. I dropped the fairings off at the painters then dashed off to pick up stickers, then back to the ...

Video: The special status of the North West 200

Back in the office after two days in Northern Ireland, primarily for Thursday’s North West 200 launch and I was trying to explain just how the race is revered in the province. The launch festivities kicked off at around 10.00am but by then there were already pictures flying through cyber-space to serve websites worldwide of bikini-clad Miss Northern Ireland, draped ...
